It's Ultimo's dishevelled regular
In a leafy pocket of Ultimo you’ll find this old timer that strikes a comfortable balance between the old ways and the new. Traditional pub fixings still have pride of place in the public bar. There’s an old propeller blade mounted on the red walls above the requisite Reschs and Kent Old Brown posters, the ceiling is proper pressed plaster and the windows are painted in peeling Celtic script.
Refreshment comes in familiar packages here. There’s Little Creatures, Coopers, Reschs, Old, New Carlton, Squires and Kosciuszko There’s no beer garden but they have co-opted an outdoor section of the neighbouring park for alfresco beers and a Sunday barbecue each week.
The newer elements to the Wolseley are all found out the back in the bistro, which has been taken over by the Pub Life Kitchen outfit, famous for their experimental burgers on Wednesdays and their trashy-but-goo cheeseburgers the rest of the time.
